Does email alerts on the DroboFS require Drobo Dashboard to be running?

Sorry if this may seem like a dumb question, but I’ll ask it anyways.

Does Email Alerts come from the DroboFS itself, or does it require a system that has Drobo Dashboard to be running in order to send out those alerts?


It depends on where you set up the email alerts. If you do it from dashboard, in the email alerts tab under settings, that is sent by the FS and you do NOT need dashboard running in order to be sent alerts.

If you have used the right-click system tray, or click on drobo dashboard next to apple icon then select “email alerts settings” from the drop down menu, you need dashboard running in order to get alerts from there.

Thanks Jennifer!

It sounds like I set it up correctly.
